An attempt to sail down the Grand Canal, in aid of DLR Special Needs activities
A 200 km trip in the beautiful new Shannon One Design “SOD” lake boat, armed with a special sail, the spinnaker pole and eight fenders from the newly restored Dublin Bay 24 – both traditional boats recently completed by Brittany wooden boat building school Skol Ar Mor.
Chris Craig & crew will take on the 130 km & 44 canal locks in stage 1 of this epic journey from Dun Laoghaire and Ringsend Harbours to Shannon Harbour - assisted by a new electric outboard motor kindly supplied by Irish Ship & Barge Fabrication Co. Then a 60 km lake sail onwards to Dromineer in time for their annual regatta.
